    First, you need to cut the roast into pieces and place it inside a crock pot. Add in onion, peppers, seasoning and tomatoes as you cover the pot before placing it over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower the heat to medium level. Cook for another 2 hours or until you find the meat easily falling apart.

    Remove the meat from the pot, place it into a large bowl and allow it to cool for few minutes. Once it is easy to handle, shred the meat using a fork or just pull it apart using your bare hands. Here, you should make sure that you have properly washed your hands before pulling the meat apart.
